My Peace – Sundaram Chauhan (My Short Stories & Thoughts)

Starting from scratch

yet again

Why do I keep

falling back to zero

Was so far ahead

so fast that

they declared

I was a hero

There perhaps

dear God

is something

you want me to know

But I only wish

you’d use

a kinder way

than pushing me so low

Each time

I looked back

dug hard

and found something wise

But this time

let me stay

at the top

if I reach new highs

Falling down

getting up and

walking again

might’ve once been fun

Hand me back

my peace now

I surrender to you

I think I am done.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
